so im new to pc gaming so im only just learning the ropes when it comes to building your own computer. so i was wanting to know how fast would dayz run on my computer my specs: AMD A4-5300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
3.4GHz 8gb ram Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit and im getting a gtx 660, also i was wanting to know if its worth instead just buying a 560? any guess on the average fps it would run at??

No sorry, the CPU is far too weak.

Right now even i5's are struggling with it.

No, no, no! Don't get an APU, especially if you plan to buy a discrete GPU! DayZ (and all games based on the Real Virtuality engine) are very CPU intensive, that low end APU won't cut it, you'll be bottlenecked. I'd recommend at least an AMD FX-6300 or Intel i5 3xxx or 4xxx if you want to really enjoy DayZ.

What is your budget for this build?

this is a demanding game you'll need to save up about £400 in total for a pc for it, ideally £500.
